Great Value”

We had a great stay at Hotel Epik. Well remodeled and very clean. We had a nice nespresso machine in the room and there was a commercial nespresso machine in the lobby. The location was amazing. Close to many cool bars and restaurants. The hotel has a very nice bar and a sister restaurant attached to it (very popular spot). Very clean and friendly and helpful staff. There is a parking structure one block north and it was affordable for a city like San Francisco. There is also meter parking readily available around the he hotel (make sure you read the signs). The best part was that we got all this for a very low price. It couldn’t have been better.

Room not EPIK!!”

Our room was tiny and didn’t have an outside view. I wasn’t warned about this and was an issue because my husband suffers with claustrophobia. We were happy to pay for an upgrade, but they were booked out. It’s not the hotel’s fault but the amount of homeless people directly outside definitely affected my view of the hotel and San Francisco in a negative way. I would definitely stay closer to Fisherman’s Wharf if I was travelling with a family. Upon check out I was told we were being charged for resort fees and when I questioned it I was only charged for one night. Why a hotel like this charges resort fees is beyond me. Having said all that the staff were very pleasant, the bar was a great escape when we were too scared to go out for a drink and the room was very modern and clean.

Nice Hotel, bad location”

The hotel has very nice staff and well maintained facilities. The staff were very helpful and tried their best to accommodate to our requests. The hotel could also do with new pillows as it was too soft and there were no support. Sound proofing for the rooms should be improved. It was very noisy in the room that we stayed in. As our room was facing the main street, loud music and street noise could be heard in the wee hours. Hotel has also been renamed to The Townsman. Location of the hotel was bad as it was surrounded by a lot of homeless on the street. It was literally lined with homeless along Eddy St and Willow St. Overall, the stay was not terrible, but I would not stay in this area (Tenderloin) again.

Good place to stay clean in the City.”

Our stay was for 2 nights. The hotel is located inside the city near an array of good restaurants. It was clean and neat. The room was a little small for two persons but well decorated. The bed matress needs to be changed but still could sleep. We could hear our hotel and homeless neoghboors noises. The hotels in the area need to work the homeless situation around the hotel. It made us feel unsafe specially in the evenings and nights. Once you get familiarized with the location you can move freely with the public transportation. When we did the reservation we were offered parking (there was no parking available only a public parking lot twoor three blocks from the hotel) also airport transfer (there was no airport transfers services we had a car reservation and had to change it).

Room 211 is situated very closely to the ice machine and other room doors at the end of a corridor which was distruptive hearing all other guests and slamming doors. Noisy construction work in the restaurant next door continued until 11pm, with no help from staff on when this would stop. Hotel seemed nice and transport to and from was easy, would request a better room if I stayed again.

Neat hotel in a bad neighborhood”

Plus: neat rooms, reasonable bed, good shower. Two minutes walk to bus 49 which takes you to Fishermen's wharf or Mission. Ten minutes walk to BART station Civic center. Minus: hotel is located on the edge of Tenderloin, so lots of drug addicts in the neighborhood. Don't walk eastwards. One block south/west/north and you're already in better areas. Be aware that there may be loud music or people shouting on the streets at night. Second, rooms are cramped.

Clean but extremely small ”

If you’re by yourself and expect to only use the hotel to sleep then this would be ok. Issues I have that make it less than optimal include: It’s small not much room and that is taken by a full size bed. There is no closet, there are no drawers and no real place to put a full size suit case There is a small rack to hang your clothes in the corner but it’s not very big. It’s not the best area. No issues traveling during the day but I’d be hesitant to walk around at night. They only clean the rooms every 3 days
